    Default probably ditching 5sfe for V8 power

    just about to finish building a smallblock 350. the stock motor was given to me and i decided to build it up with plans for putting it my 97 mazda b2300 pickup. the motor has the works having an extreme energy comp cam, springs, valves, roller rockers, edelbrock performer dual plane intake, edelbrock performer 650cfm carb, msd distributor, gear drive for the cam, new bottom end, .030 overbore, etc. this motor will be making alot of power.

    anyway, i have been wanting to take on another challenging project to keep me busy. so i have been thinking about putting this motor and tranny in the celica. i've actually given it alot of study and thought. i've taken measurements and it will definately fit. there will be some fabbing as far as mounts, crossmembers, driveshaft, may have to cut and widen the center area between the floor pans. that is probably not gonna be too involved.

    also, i'll be converting over to rwd. which won't be a problem considering i can source all the parts. i'll have to pull the gas tank and use a different fuel cell. definately going to have to build a crossbrase in the hatch and stiffen a couple areas of the body.

    not sure about hood clearance yet. i'd have to actually get the motor in the bay and float it into the posistion that is going to gain me the best bell housing clearance. it's quite possible that i will have to cut the hood and put a scoop on it. haven't quite decided if i'm going to run the exhaust all the way back or not. that will be a decision i make in the end. depends mainly on available space.

    i'll definately have to stiffen the front suspension to handle the extra weight.

    i'm sure there will be other small issues i run into during the process, but that's expected.

    so those are my plans. i'm not 100% set on doing this yet. i'm going to give it some more thought over the next couple weeks. i figure if a guy can stuff a twin turbo 1uzfe into a gt4 then a smallblock will fit no problem.

    if i do this then i'll be parting my 5sfe to help fund it.

    nah, it's nothing springs and shocks can't take care of. i'll be seating the motor back as far as possible. according to my measurements, if i can mount the motor where i plan to, then that will put the front of the motor about 6in or so from the radiator. that's only rough measurements though so it could be more or less. there is some uncertainty with this. it's one of those things that i won't be 100% sure of what i'm getting into until i pull my motor and lower the 350 into the bay.

    This would be cool. Some of the MR2 guys are going through the research to put Audi V6s and V8s into the MR2. It seems possible, but a lot of work.

    Do it. I doubt the nose weight would be more than an awd transfercase and 400lb T4 sitting over the front wheels.

    i'll take that into consideration. you won't be getting the port & polished head though. i promised it to someone else. i'm going to put the cams in my old head. which was milled .040in and has a 3 angle valve job. i only put 2000 miles on that head before swaping out to the p&p'd head. you can port match it yourself if you want. send me a pm.

    i need someone to take a picture of the under carriage of their alltrac. i need to see how the exhaust is routed. on the gts it's routed down the center. i figured that on the alltrac that is where the driveshaft is.

    Good luck by the way. You might have to cut out your spare tire well also, I know the 185s is shallower than the 184 for some reason.

    I don't think the GT4 rear diff is strong enough for that amount of hp/torque. Seen enough rear diff's shattered with 400-600 bhp ST185/205. With the 50/50 distribution that would mean a GT4 rear diff only can take between 200-300bhp. Hope you dont consider taken it to a 1/4 mile event with drag radials.

    it's not going to be a drag car. so the stress of launching won't be a factor. the guy who has the 1uzfe v8 in his gt4 is pushing 600hp with only the stock rear differential. i think the rear end is pretty stout. there's alway's that chance of breaking something though. gotta pay to play.

    don't think i mentioned it above. definately going to have to cut into the bottom of the firewall and tunnel it out to make more room for the tranny. that's no problem though. hacking away at sheet metal is the easy part.
